Car­ers urged to slow down

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - NEWS -

LO­CAL car­ers are in­vited to con­nect and un­wind over a de­li­cious high-tea style lunch at Lifestreams Church in Como on Oc­to­ber 21 be­tween 11am and 1pm.

The City of South Perth’s free Slow Down lunch is open to any­one who is an in­for­mal carer of a loved one of any age.

The lunch, which co­in­cides with Na­tional Car­ers Week from Oc­to­ber 15 to 21, is an op­por­tu­nity to recog­nise and cel­e­brate the out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion of un­paid car­ers.

The event will in­clude tips on re­duc­ing stress, mind­ful­ness ac­tiv­i­ties, a con­ver­sa­tion about the im­por­tance of so­cial sup­ports, good food and a good dose of hu­mour to help re­lax and re­vive lo­cal in­for­mal car­ers.

To at­tend the free Car­ers Slow Down lunch, visit the City’s web­site and RSVP by Oc­to­ber 13.
